Welcome to Year 1

Class Information:
  • Homework is uploaded to Class Dojo on Friday and is to be completed by the following Thursday.

  • We ask that children read 4-5 times, selecting books at their level from Oxford Owl. Photos of reading diaries should be uploaded once a week to Dojo.

  • Other homework may be issued on an ad hoc basis.

  • We follow Read Write Inc. for phonics. 

  • In Year One we listen to the children read at least once a week, we have guided reading sessions four days a week.

  • Obviously there is a great deal more reading goes on in class.

  • Often we will try to slip additional reading in during the day. For this reason please ensure that your child’s reading book is in class every day.

  • Our PE lessons are on Friday, please ensure that your child has their kit in school on these days.

Classroom Routines:
  • We have daily sessions of reading, English and maths. The children will be split into groups according to our assessments of their ability.

  • We place a big emphasis on children working collaboratively within lessons.

  • Children are provided with all of the equipment that they may need for their lessons so there is no need for them to bring pencil cases in.

  • Please contact us on the yard if we are available or write a short note.

  • You can contact us via Class Dojo

  • Please can you discourage children from bringing games, toys or other possessions into school other than if asked. We cannot look for broken, swapped or lost possessions.
